Teaching artist, Peyton Scott Russell’s earliest memories as a child were making art and being creative. This continued into high school where he discovered graffiti art from the film Style Wars in 1984. This consumed his art interest. As a Bush Fellowship recipient, 2012-14, Peyton formed SPRAYFINGER. This is a program used for teaching, Graffiti: The Art of Creative Lettering, to youth, adults, seniors and the community at large. Peyton talks about his experience teaching a visual arts program at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA), part of Aroha Philanthropies’ Seeding Vitality Arts Initiative.
